where the government shutdown. without those claims the number would have dropped below the 100,000 threshold. the number of homes facing foreclosure is down 30% from this time last year. but it is not a sign of good economic news. it is simply because most banks are taking more time to take back homes. the reasons they are still working through foreclosure documentation problems that surfaced last fall. experts say that could delay recovery and the housing marketing until 2016. 7:49, an update now on developing news in san francisco. there's a big back up right now following a deadly crash at octavia and oak. at least two people were hit by a big rig. jade joins us now from the scene. >> reporter: we were stuck in part of that back up. we were about two blocks back in traffic that is at a
